URBANDALE, Iowa and AMES, Iowa— August 1, 2019— ScoutPro Inc. has partnered with Farmers Edge, a global leader in digital agriculture, to deliver the best-in-class imagery solution available for crop monitoring to their customers. Daily satellite imagery, state-of-the-art processing technology, and unique map layers are now integrated into the ScoutPro scouting app.
Highly rated among retailers and other agricultural service providers, ScoutPro offers top-of-the-line field observation software and solutions built on high-quality information. Farmers Edge integrated approach to scouting delivers previously unavailable intelligence on crop development to ScoutPro users through a unique map set that shows variabilities in the field beginning immediately after seeding.
“We’re excited to offer a complete package of solutions built for retailers and agricultural professionals that now includes seamless integration of this new map set for directed scouting,” said Michael Koening, ScoutPro Inc. president. “Unlike with traditional scouting, imagery-derived maps give our customers the big picture of their fields and increases their capacity for directed scouting – the imagery is captured, the maps are processed and then put directly into their hands. It’s a scalable solution for businesses to better assess their needs and cover more acres; no other company offers this combination of high-resolution, high-frequency imagery and processing technology.”
ScoutPro sought out Farmers Edge after learning about their digital agronomy tools powered by daily satellite imagery, field-centric data, machine learning, IoT, and AI-driven analytics. They recognized the value that imagery-derived scouting maps have on the traditional scouting experience.
